Platinum games interested in Darksiders

So what happens to Vigil if they do this? I mean, couldn't they just buy Vigil and work together?

Aren't Platinum games just developers? Who will publish the games? Sure hope it's not Nintendo again.

Platinum...wants Darksiders? I'm a very happy man.

It's a good fit in many respects; they excel at melee combat action games, a genre few developers really focus on.

tweets have been happening between the P* head honchos and Vigils lead combat designer.. P* asked if anyone from Vigil games wants to work with or for P* to contact them.. Hope most find jobs else where

So are they interested in the IP, do they want the team to join them, or both?

I hope not, I don't want Darksiders to be turned in to a linear, super fast, 4 hour long action game.

I love Platinum Games, but I don't think they are right for Darksiders.


Darksiders is so different from Bayonetta and Vanquish, and this is the style of game that Platinum Games excel at. They are the best Action Game developer out there. Darksiders just would not work with their style in my opinion. The series isn't supposed to have a complex battle system, and I think PG would try to implement a complex and intuitive one. Besides, Darksiders is more than just Combat. You have Puzzling and Exploration as well. PG isn't really known for Puzzling and Exploration aspects in their games


Darksiders is best left to another Dev

That could be the point; maybe they want the IP because it's outside of their comfort zone.
